What is your weather like? (2)

Drove back to Dordogne from edge of Burgundy today, from son's. As soon as I got to the motorway at Vierzon there was torrential rain and strong winds. We were doing about 50mph a lot of the time. Rained all the way to Limoges, 2 hours. Whole journey was 5 1/2 hours.

I hope I sleep better tonight. Cat was looking pleased with himself and there was a dead mouse on the sitting room floor.


Going home tomorrow after I've taken granddaughter to school. Hope the weather isn't too awful for the drive.


Hope OH has recorded Strictly and the results.

System Glitch?

Kitty, David K's posts didn't disappear because of a glitch on the site, he asked to be removed completely, which meant his posts had to go too.

Worked for me, someone who went to my old school had posted, didn't know her but she mentioned a girl in my younger sister's class.

Wind and rain eased off this afternoon so helped son to rake leaves then we went for a walk while little granddaughters were having their sleep.


Love lamb shanks and a brandy without ice sounds most welcome.

It's been very windy today, strong gusts and some rain. I hope it's better for my drive home tomorrow.


I'm not scared of mice, it's just that this one is so noisy. I've emptied the bin, it was fully of rustly paper, the remains of a baguette and pistachio nut shells. Mouse was having a field day.


Cat is still asleep on the bed.

Morning all. I'm staying with son, near Auxerre on the edge of Burgundy. Really strong winds here and rain this morning.


Slept badly at son's for the 2nd night. There is a mouse in my room. Friday night I heard it and thought there was a small animal in the ceiling but last night I saw it. It's very active between 4 and 6am. It went in the bin, which has nut shells in it so I put the bin outside the door, but it came bac under the door. Then the granddaughters woke up at 7am, noisy. I've just let their cat into my room but he's not interested in mice, too lazy. He's dozing on the bed leaning against my legs.

Memories of the past

In the 60s I liked Dixon of Dock Green, Dr. Finlay's Casebook and Steptoe and Son on TV. I was still at school so needed parents' permission. Don't think I would have got away with Steptoe if my rather strict father had seen it. In '69 went off to London to train as a nurse and never seemed to have time to watch TV. Evening duties and social life.
